many hoppers won't be able to decide on just one, and will need to
purchase multiple fabric packets.
Each store will be
selling a different color fabric packet consisting of 4 different
fabrics of one color and one full strip of the exclusive KANSAS

SUNFLOWER FABRIC available to pre-order. Click here:

has a different color pack. (Sorry, on-line customers, we'll
have to discuss other options. Or, come to Kansas! :) We're worth the trip!)
I've heard customers
saying that they have no need for another large bed quilt, as well as
customers saying they can't be bothered with small projects, and ONLY
make bed quilts! LOL
My finishing kit gives you
Make a QUEEN SIZE quilt, or make several smaller
projects, as I did.
My LARGE THROW (the
sampler quilt pictured above) is finished 79 x
79 inches and looks great on top of a queen-size bed or folded on the
back of a couch.
also had left-over fabrics enough to make a
22 x 52 TABLE RUNNER and
24 x 24 TABLE TOPPER.
includes all the fabric needed for the KALEIDOSCOPE block CENTERS, the
borders, inner borders, setting triangles, and binding enough for 1
queen-size quilt or several projects as shown here, is just

If you want something
more "exotic" than Kansas (LOL - Laughing Out Loud), then be
sure to take a look at our NEWEST ADDITIONS and
AFRICAN BEAT from
Hoffman, in particular.
Here's my little TRAVEL SEWING PROJECT
that I carry around with me. I'm making the yo-yos for my
BUTTONS BOWS & YO YOs quilt using the GERTA FABRIC collection from
I've got my YO-YO MAKER
and DESK NEEDLE THREADER, two of my favorite CLOVER
Doesn't that big print
make neat yo-yos?! I can't wait to get my quilt done! See

It is very difficult to
get to CHARLOTTE'S BARGAIN FABRIC & STITCHERY in the CHISHOLM
TRAIL MALL at the moment because Newton is a city progressing!
i.e. they've torn up our ramps on and off I-135 to make them wider and
able to accomodate the large trucks that will be moving to and from
the new industrial park being built just east of the Mall.
If you are coming from
the south, try to remember to get off at the exit just south of SE
36th St., which is K-196, which is exit #25 and is marked to
Whitewater & El Dorado. Then go west 1/2 a mile to Old Hwy 81
(also known as N. Broadway out of Wichita and S. Kansas out of Newton), turn right and
go north 3 miles to SE 36th, turn right and you are there.
you are coming from the north, at this time, you can still exit, but
not get back on south-bound I-135. When you leaving the Mall and
want to go south,
turn left, go west 1/4 mile to Old Hwy 81, then turn left, going south
3 miles to K-196, turn left and get back on I-135.
"They" have marked a
"detour", but it takes you 3 miles north and does a u-turn
at 1st Street to head you back southbound. I am lobbying the
Kansas Department of Transportation for better signs, but I'm not sure
my voice is loud enough!
If you are in downtown
Newton, it is easy to stay on Main Street (which changes names along
the way) and go the 4 miles south to
SE 36th Street, turn left and you'll see the Mall. Or leaving
the Mall, go west to the stop sign, turn right and go north to
Charlotte's Sew Natural at 710 N. Main St. in downtown.
CHARLOTTE'S BARGAIN STORE in your Shop Hop travel plans. While
it is not a "hop shop", we will be running extra specials to
make it worth the stop! Like $1 FAT QUARTERS, pre-cut $3.97 to
$5.97 1 yard fabrics, originally priced up to $9.99/yd. SPECIAL 5-yard
BACKING BUNDLES, and more specials too. We'll have just added
hundreds of new AUNT MARTHA's TRANSFER PATTERNS to the inventory, so
come check them out while the selection is GREAT!
Hope to see you soon or
at next week's SHOP HOP!
This week, Ruth starts a year long program, EGG
MONEY QUILTS by Eleanor Burns. This class will meet 4th
Thursdays at 10 a.m. & 7 p.m. Call for details.
Thanks to all of you who endured with us on the 11th. When we
arrived at the store at 8 a.m. to prepare for our SECOND
SATURDAY presentation, we had no electricity! That meant no lights, no
air conditioning and no cash register. We moved to the back
class room where the breeze and light was good from the two
windows. And we had everything up and running by noon.
Thanks especially to all of you who were there and came back!
The images of this month's CORN & BEANS blocks are now on the web
Have a great week!
